Cloudy Eye




Cloudy Eye


'Cloudy Eye' is not a disease by itself, but is actually a symptom for an eye ailment or abnormality.  Possible causes of cloudy eyes include:  bacterial infection, physical damage to the eye, cancerous growth, cataract, water chemistry problems (such as ammonia poisoning), and nutritional deficiencies.  Cloudy eye is not very common but it is a fish health concern for many aquarists (not just koi hobbyists).
